If You've Got It, Haunt It
Author: Rose Pressey
With the help of her good friend Heather, a magical white cat named Wind Song, and the ghost, Cookie is on the case.
I enjoyed this book, mostly because of the antics of the ghost. Charlotte can't be seen by anyone other than Cookie but she still makes snide comments and even attempts to punch people. And she always appears in new outfits with coordinating makeup somehow, despite being very very dead.
The cat was a cool addition to the plot, but seemed almost like an after-thought added just for cozy fluff or supernatural ambiance. As the owner of two awesome white cats, I was happy to see the kitty on the cover. It was interesting that Wind Song was a bit on the magical side, but it wasn't a key part of the story.
Clothing and the fashion choices of different characters are discussed a lot throughout the book because of the vintage clothing theme. At times the added details of what fabric something was made from or what sort of sleeves or collar is on a clothing item got a bit tedious. But it didn't harm my enjoyment of this book. The humor and fun antics of the main characters carried the story through any moments where I just didn't care what sort of purse coordinated with an outfit or what brand of vintage shoes Cookie found at an estate sale.
All in all, this was a funny, enjoyable cozy.
